Additionally, the increased deforestation exposes the citizens of such nations to property loss from wind actions since the trees that would act as windbreakers are already removed. Additionally, the continued deforestation negatively influences the agricultural production ( Condrea and Ionel 845) . This is because cutting down of trees exposes the agricultural land to soil erosion agents such as water and wind, which carries away the nutrients from such areas, and thus, reduces the fertility of the soil and subsequent reduction in soil fertility.
